New U2 single: Think Gloria Estefan meets Queens of the Stone Age

It's the first single from the most anticipated album since Moses put the 10 commandments to a dub rhythm on a limited stone pressing. OK, it's not, but a new track from Bono and co always turns a few heads, and are today streaming Get On Your Boots for everyone to listen to.

Two quick thoughts (feel free to post your own below):

1) The chorus is thrusting and urgent, but it still reminds me of Get On Your Feet by Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.

2) The heavy chugging guitars. It sounds like somebody's been listening to Queens of the Stone Age. With Arctic Monkeys' third album and an apparent influence on Franz Ferdinand's new sound, is Josh Homme the most influential man in rock (for Kalyr, that's mainstream rock) right now
